If you are anything like me, you are probably tired of all the promises of new and exciting inventions that are just over the horizon or about to change the world as we know it. I’m talking about the flying car in our garage, the trip to the moon for anyone interested, the miracle foods that end world hunger and keep you thin and fit no matter how much you eat ... blah, blah, blah.

I’ve been reading about these miracle products in the popular science magazines for 50 years. Come to think of it, this is probably one of the reasons why I became an engineer. I’m so tired of these things never showing up that I’ve cancelled all my subscriptions. Now all I read is Discourse when I need a little “R and R.”

And now, lo and behold, the rumors begin again. The new promise is how the kiting community is about to revolutionize the world of regenerative power using kites and propellers in various forms to harness the wind for unlimited clean energy. Blah, blah, blah. Here we go again.
